I don't know how I missed hearing about this until now, but on November 1, for the first time in its one-hundred-and-twenty-five-year history, the Arthur Conan Doyle Estate has authorized a new Sherlock Holmes novel.
I'm heading to Barnes and Noble right now.
Sweet! I love Sherlock Holmes. He is a fantastic character.
I hope this book is better than The Sherlockian
I loved Hound of the Baskervilles when I was a kid.
Shame about those movies.
But a new book, that sounds interesting.
I would think being approved by his estate it should be pretty good. We'll see.
Anything is better than those Robert Downey Jr. movies.
The TV show is splendid. You should watch it.
Splendid, there's a word you don't see everyday. We should bring splendid back into common usage. I've got the show on my netflix instant queue (did I spell that right?). And, I liked the first Downey movie, haven't seen the second...what's so terrible about them, I think they're better than 90% of the rest of the crap Hollywood slings.
And lest this digress from the OP, I loved Sherlock as a kid. I haven't read any in more years than I care to count, but those are big shoes to fill on the part of Horowitz. I'll probably read it.
